  1. Most often I use silver, but it would really depend on the DSP and cardstock that I am using. Sometimes gold is the color that suits the project best. Have a wonderful Thansgiving holiday!!!

  3. love to use both really depends on the cardstock for me!

  6. I love both silver and gold. But I’m loving the colors real red and gold.

  7. Sandra Kukla Schroeder

    For the most part, I like gold on my holiday cards, but anything with snowflakes I like to use a combination of white, blue and silver.

  8. I’m more of a fan of gold along with our SU reds.

  9. I chose the combination of both colors. I often combine the two and the results are stunning!

  10. I choose gold or silver depending on the other colors in the project. If mostly green, I would choose gold. If I were using blues, I would choose silver. Of course there’s nothing wrong with mixing metals either!! It gives your project an elegant touch!

  11. gold has the warmth but silver denotes winter outside.. guess it depends on the style & colors of the card

  12. Hi Mary – I tend to use both, depending on what my base colors are for my card. Cooler colors get silver, warmer colors get gold! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  13. Hi Mary…I am a silver girl!! 🙂 Thank you for the chance!!

  14. I tend to naturally gravitate towards silver, so I consciously try to use gold too!!! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  15. I love both- it really depends upon the project and colors I am working with. Thanks for the chance to win!

  18. In the winter, I reach for silver – it compliments the effects of snow

  19. I love both!! Thanks!!
    Happy Thanksgiving!!

  20. I prefer silver for the holidays when it comes to paper crafting, it reminds me of snow!

  21. Sandra Meyers

    Happy Turkey Day Mary, I say why limit yourself to just gold or just silver. I love them both equally. A few gold and/or silver accents will make a card pop . Whereas a card made totally out of gold or silver really sparkles.

    Stampin Up gives the option of so many different types of gold and silver paper and accents that the possibilities are endless!

  22. Sheryl Cushman

    I use both, depending on what my day is like, determines my choice. On a day where there is a new snowfall – silver is definitely the one I use. What a great giveaway. Thanks, Mary.

  34. Both, Silver with Blue…and Gold with Green and Red, of course that is not a rule, just my preference

  35. For me Gold is representative of Jesus Christ and His Deity and righteousness. For Christmas and Chanukah I have to go for the GOLD. New Year’s I go for the silver.

  54. Oh my gosh I love using silver & Gold on all my Christmas cards. I also like to add gold embossing or glitter

  55. both of Course….I love them mixed together also…..

  56. I love the simplicity of gold embossing. I’ve done entire Christmas cards / tags classes with two colors of card stock, 1 neutral card stock and just gold embossing. The common color theme is just classic and impressive. (One could do the same with silver, but gold is still my fav.)

  57. I’m not a very glitzy gal, but I do sometimes add silver and gold. I think I use then both about the same amount, and when I do, it’s usually to add a bit of glittery paper.

  58. I love a mixture of both silver and gold. I love the song Burl Ives sung on Rudolph Silver and Gold so I have always used both.

  59. I think both colors add a richness and elegance to cards made with them. Personally, I seem to lean more towards gold, but I would say silver is my favorite–figure that one out!

  60. I tend to use more gold but this year its about equal so far. Thanks for the chance to win the wonderful blog candy.

  61. I love both – it just depends on the card and the look for which I’m aiming!!

  62. Hi Mary: he he…took me a while to scroll to the bottom of this . Thanks for the opportunity to join in and win such a generous blog candy. Looks like most of us are on the same page with using silver for cool colors and gold for warm and more traditional colors. Good Luck Evertone.

  63. My choice of either gold or silver depends on the DSP I choose and what looks best with that. Just like when I dress & choose my accessories 😉
    Thanks Mary for your great blog and a chance at some wonderful blog candy!

  64. I think I would have to say silver – both are pretty but I just love the sparkle you can do with silver.

  65. I absolutely LOVE silver – especially with blues and purples. Very regal feeling. If I’m using green or red, then I go with gold.

  66. I enjoy a mix, because I always think I love gold the most UNTIL I use silver or pewter, then I think they are prettier! 🙂

  67. I love both gold and silver but more partial to gold. Reminds me of the peacefulness of the season and the silver reminds me of the beauty of the season.

    Hi Mary,

    What YUMMY blog candy!!!! 🙂

    It’s funny, because I have always preferred silver (sterling silver or platinum jewelry, brushed nickel or even bronze fixtures around the house, …) and I usually make holiday cards that are silver, white, and light blue (to go along with my tree and winter wonderland theme!), but gold is starting to grow on me! 😉 My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this past summer so maybe all of the beautiful paper I used to create their decorations & party favors has something to do with it? I think I like both now! Unfortunately I haven’t designed my cards for this year yet ;o so it will be interesting to see what I end up going with!

    Thank you so much for sharing your time and talent with us, 🙂

    Jennifer

  383. I’m a gold girl, it’s warm rich and elegant

  384. Oh, I can’t decide….love them both!!

  385. Tough choice here, but I think gold is #1, with silver following close behind. Great stuff you are sharing with one luck winner!!

  402. I use both, as I alternate color schemes each year with “non-traditional” combos. One year it’s deep purple and gold, the next year it’s silver and sky blue.

  403. I love to mix it up! Silver for the cool colors and gold for the warm ones.

  404. If I’m mixing cool colors, I prefer silver, but warm colors, I think gold looks better. But in the end it’s the amount of silver or gold or other colors. It’s always fun to fiddle with proportions.

  405. Silver is my favorite! But gold is very classic.

    Love using the gold. It adds a real touch of “class” to any card.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for giving me a chance to win. I like using both.

  686. I like a mix of both! Five golden rings, silver bells and glistening snow -the holidays simply sparkle!!

  687. I prefer gold in my jewelry but I like silver and gold for card making because the theme of the card dictates the gold or silver I would use.

      I usually prefer silver but if I have a choice as in Stampin I go for both to “mix it up”. Variety is the spice of life. Love the cards in your blog.

  688. Hmmmm…hard to decide this year. I like them both and depends if the other colors in my design are cool or warm. This year I used mostly gold for my cards.

  689. I like to mix it up with both gold and silver. Lots of possibilities!!!

  690. Although I like both depending on the colors I’m using, I must admit I’m partial to silver in holiday crafting. Thanks for the chance in the giveaway!

  691. They both can add a lot of elegance to a card, so I guess I like both. Thanks for all your great ideas and this blog give away.

  702. Until very recent, I always loved gold. But lately I am learning to like silver.

  703. Phyllis Sakamoto

    I love both silver & gold. Just depends on the paper!

    • I agree with Phyllis. It depends on the other colors. Silver with blue for sure – think winter & snow. Gold more with red and green. Thank you for your consistent inspiration!

    • Hi Mary! I would say I am usually more of a silver lover but the gold is growing and I totally agree with the other ladies that it depends on the other colors used with it. I really like silver with the night of navy also. I think of silver bells but really they could be gold ;-). So maybe both??
